Cajun died on May 28th, 2011 at 2:08pm in our living room. He had diabetes, only we didn't know until it was too late. He started acting funny, wouldn't eat, only threw up when he drank. We thought he had a bug or was hot because our house AC was out at the time.

The vet told us he had gone into ketoacidosis. It was fatal and we were helpless to make him well. We could not afford the aggressive treatment, but I doubt it would have mattered anyway.

We made him comfortable on our living room floor, petted him and loved on him until he was gone. We are crushed because a few days prior he was chasing birds in the backyard.

We didn't know. Now he's gone. It hurts.
